Pathways

Students in grades 6-12 that commit the most serious infractions of the Code of Student Conduct (Levels IV and V) may be recommended for expulsion and will be placed in the Pathways Program during the period of time which would have traditionally resulted in a ten (10) day outdoor suspension during the expulsion process.  Students will receive academic support, in-house counseling services and receive wrap-around services from community agencies.

There are currently two (2) locations for the Pathways Program at the following locations:

  • Jan Mann Opportunity School – 16101 N.W. 44th Ct., Miami Gardens, FL
  • Miami MacArthur South – 13990 S.W. 264 St., Miami FL


Opportunity Schools

Opportunity schools serve students in grades 6-12 whose behavior interferes with their safety, the well-being of others. Students are referred by traditional schools for serious violations of the District’s discipline plan, The Code of Student Conduct. The Division of Educational Opportunity and Access reviews recommendations, and assigns students for a specified period, as permissible by law. In lieu of expulsion, educational services are continued at one of these 3 schools.
